I have to ask this, why are using an OS that is EOL, along with an
version of Samba that is also EOL ????

How are you trying to join the 2012 server, as a domain member or as a
DC ?

If it is as a DC, this is not going to work.

You could try disabling DNS lookups on the 2012 server.



Note: You do this at your own risk.

I personally would upgrade your OS and Samba, I would also upgrade to AD
